National Championship Game!

The day has arrived and two teams will be battling it out tonight to see who wins the College Football Playoffs!

First off, congratulations to Alabama and Clemson for getting this far. It is an incredible achievement and I wish them both the best but I do hope it ends with a 0-0 tie with lots of punt snaps for my eyes:)

Here are the Rubio Long Snappers that will be participating in this game…

Alabama – Cole Mazza, Ryan Parris and Scott Meyer

The Journey of Rubio Long Snapper Damon Johnson

I wanted to tell you a quick story, that very few of you actually know about, regarding Rubio Long Snapper Damon Johnson.

Damon, a 2016 Five Star Rubio Long Snapper from CA, was offered a full scholarship to West Virginia back in June heading into his senior year. He took his trip there during the fall, fell in love with it and committed to be their next Long Snapper in October of his senior year.

On the Friday of VEGAS XXVII in January (several months after his commitment), Damon was packing the car for the weekend and was contacted by a Graduate Assistant from West Virginia.The G.A. informed Damon that West Virginia was not going to honor their commitment to Damon and there would be no scholarship for him as they were going to give it to another position. (I have been working with Long Snappers for well over a decade and this is the first time I have ever seen something like this happen. First time.) 

Damon was beyond dumbfounded and completely thrown for a loop. Down in the dumps would be the biggest understatement in the history of mankind. This is a kid, who is very quiet and doesn’t show much emotion, having to deal with a major ordeal before one of the biggest weekends of his life. Damon who was so loyal to West Virginia that he told many schools (North Carolina, Memphis, Portland State and BYU) that he was done with his recruiting to get ready for the Mountaineers.

Imagine heading to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas competition with a full scholarship under your belt, knowing you could breathe a little easier and having it taken from you (out of your control) at the very last second. 99.9% of the Long Snappers and their families would have not shown up or been a visual mess. With the Johnson family, you would never be able to tell anything was even wrong. I am still amazed at how well they handled it all.

I told him and his family to simply relax and that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I knew we could be headed for an uphill battle, but even I didn’t realize just how much of a fight it would entail.

After a call, USC immediately jumped on the Damon bandwagon and wanted him asap. A top tier Rubio Long Snapper is not always around after signing day and one had just appeared. Damon began communication with the Trojans but soon found out his English score on the SAT was simply too low to be a preferred walk-on at USC. This is where Damon goes from a boy, to a man.

Damon was told he would have to go to a JC, maintain a 3.5 GPA, take eight classes from summer through fall, and if he received a C or lower, he would disqualify himself. The eight classes had to be core classes (fluff elective classes would NOT be accepted).

This is a BIG reach for Damon. He is (was) not, let’s say, a very motivated and/or highly academic student….in the past. School was something Damon simply tolerated in order to play football and hang out with his friends. His entire mindset would have to change.

He stuck his head in the books, camped out in the library and hired any tutors he could find to help him TRY to achieve his goal of getting to USC. In the summer, he took English, History and Art History. In the fall, he took English, Biology with a lab, Sociology, History and Criminal Justice. He studied and studied and studied and studied and studied….well, you get my point.

About one week ago, Damon received his final grades from Citrus Junior College and found he had done it! USC already knew and congratulated him on his accomplishment. He would be able to get into USC and play football for them. To put even more icing on the cake, the Trojans presented Damon with a four year college scholarship to USC instead of a preferred walk-on!

Damon accepted, signed right away and will be enrolling at USC on January 4th.

I am EXTREMELY proud of Damon and his family. I really don’t think Damon, or his family, even believed he could do it. There were many calls, texts, emails between us all. Damon, and his family, have traveled an incredible emotional journey over the past year. His story is one that I will tell countless times as I am sure he and his family will as well.

Remember, recruiting is never easy and no two stories are the same. Patience is a key virtue throughout and, never forget, everything happens for a reason.

Congratulations once again to Rubio Long Snapper Damon Johnson! YOU DID IT….on the field and, more importantly, off the field as well.

Rubio Long Snapper Riley Lovingood Earns SEC Honor

riley-lovingood4225Congratulations to Rubio Long Snapper Riley Lovingood on earning SEC Special Teams Player of the Week for the University of Tennessee!

Riley had a crucial play in Tennessee’s victory over Georgia where he snapped a great ball and then proceeded to run down field and catch the ball, on the fly, over his shoulder, on the 6 yard line. A couple plays later, Tennesse caused a fumble and scored!

Recap of the College Camp (July 16-17, 2016)

J-A-VstrsMany of the top college Long Snappers in the country came out to the incredible IMG ACADEMY in Bradenton, FL for two days of great instruction and camaraderie. This is always one of my favorite camps due to the high level of snapping and getting to see all of the Long Snapper’s personalities.

Josh Appel

Josh Appel

The top overall Long Snapper was Josh Appel of Indiana State. Appel is a back to back champion of this camp and is looking very solid heading into his senior year and future in the NFL. He has great size, an incredibly fast snap (not uncommon to see him in snap in the .6s and EVEN high .5s for 15 yards). Keep a close eye on Appel and you will not be disappointed.

Dillon Paprota

Dillon Paprota

The Accuracy Champion of the camp was Dillon Paprota of Bucknell. Paprota is just heading to Bucknell this fall but already looks like a seasoned vet. He has excellent size and strength with an extremely powerful snap. Accuracy is obviously off the charts and he has a great demeanor. Already expecting him to win this camp next year.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Williams of South Carolina is going to be one of the top overall Long Snappers in college next year with his outstanding speed, solid accuracy and great athleticism for the Gamecocks.

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire at the college camp. This left is very smooth and his accuracy is excellent. Only going into his second season with the Florida Gators and they look to be set for some time with his great snaps.

Tanner Carew of the Oregon Ducks was excellent all camps. Athletic Long Snapper with very good power and an incredibly smooth snap. Always fun to watch Carew snap and see his personality.

Questions Regarding the College Camps

As you know, hopefully, Chris Sailer and I have posted the schedule of college camps we will be running this summer. Trust me when I tell you, we could have run another 30 of them for the coaches that asked us, but we simply don’t have time.

BIGGEST THING TO KNOW ABOUT COLLEGE CAMPS is to NOT wear yourself out by trying to hit all of them. As a Long Snapper, you should hit about three. Think of yourself like a pitcher in baseball…you have a pitch count. The more you snap, the worse you will do. One bad performance can crush you in recruiting as all coaches speak to each other. DO NOT waste your time and money by hitting too many camps. 

Here are the top five questions regarding the college camps (Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU, Oregon, Cal, Miami, Georgia, Washington, Cincinnati)….

  1. How do you get invited? You don’t. They are open to all 8th graders – JC. Some schools might be a tad different so check on their respective site. Younger Long Snappers should focus on the regional Rubio Long Snapping camps and FBU.
  2. How do I sign up for the camp(s)? You go to their football site and register. You can also call the football office.
  3. At what age do you recommend my son goes to a college camp? The time to shine will be in between his junior and senior summer (unless you are a freak, in a good way, and then I would highly recommend dominating between sophomore and junior year). However, I personally recommend going as early as possible to cut the jitters. It can be very stressful snapping in front of a high profile coach and you want to get the feeling out of the way early, when they most likely won’t be paying attention to you.
  4. Will the camp(s) be run like your personal camps? Not really. I am hired to run their camp so I am on their schedule. If they want 40 minutes of blocking, that’s what we will be doing. If a coach wants to see John Smith snap thirty in a row, that’s what they get. These camps are more showcases. PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT, under any circumstances, have my Long Snappers just snap to snap. I know that is ignorant and I won’t stand for it. DOUBLE PLEASE NOTE: if you are at a college camp that Rubio Long Snapping is not running, godspeed.
  5. Will you be ranking from the college camps? No. Per NCAA rules, I am not allowed to rank and/or evaluate from the college camps. You could be absolutely phenomenal and I would not be able to rank you or invite to the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE Camp. If you are at a college camp and someone does invite you to their “invite only” camp, they are breaking a very big rule.

If you any other questions, please feel free to comment on this blog so I can answer it and maybe clear up someone else’s confusion as well.

VEGAS NATIONAL EVENTS

VEGAS XXV Finals

As you know, the Vegas Events are the biggest and best Long Snapping camps in the world. They are truly a national event to see how you compete against the best in the nation, and world. The May Event, or VEGAS XXVIII, is the second largest Long Snapping camp we run (VEGAS XXVII in January was the biggest). The main difference is the weather and there are less seniors since many have already stepped onto their college campuses for their next stage of their life.

The Vegas Events are NOT an invite only camp. They are first come, first served. Long Snappers ranging from 8th grade – JC are allowed to attend.

This is the SUPER BOWL for Long Snappers. No other Long Snapping event comes close to the exposure offered by the Vegas Events. Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the most credible recruiting source for Long Snappers in the country.  The “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” is the list to be on if you are seeking national exposure. From the Vegas Events, the Rubio Long Snapping Staff will select the “TOP 12” Seniors/JC & the “TOP 12” Underclassman and “Event Elite”. Over 90% of the “TOP 12” have received full ride D1A scholarships in the past. Over 99% members of the “TOP 12” have gone on to play college football. In addition the “TOP 12” Underclassman will be invited to attend an exclusive summer camp to train and compete amongst that elite group.  The Competition Finals Round Winners (FG, Punt, and LS) will receive FREE Rubio Long Snapping Camps for 1 FULL YEAR. (Excludes transportation and Hotel). The Vegas Events offer the best exposure possible for Long Snappers. Rubio Long Snapping has personal relationships with over 100 D1A Universities and many more at other levels. This is your chance to get recognized on a national scale. Rubio Long Snapping works very closely with Scout.com, Rivals.com, Espn.com, etc. and have also been featured in Sports Illustrated, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Deadspin, etc.

FBU CAMPS

Army All-Americans 2015

Once again, Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer Kicking will be teaming up with FBU to run the specialists portion of their camps. FBU is the world’s largest football training service and has hired us to handle their Long Snapping section. It is an honor and we are proud to do it again. It is a top notch organization that benefits countless athletes across the country.

Rubio Long Snapping will be running more camps than EVER. This year I will only be at the TOP GUN CAMP.  All other locations will have two Rubio Long Snapping Senior Instructors in attendance (staff members that have been with me for well over 30 camps). They will follow the same format as myself and report directly to FBU and yours truly.

Rubio Long Snapping will be choosing the two Long Snappers that will participate in the US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL at the FBU TOP GUN CAMP in South Carolina on July 14-15. Rubio Long Snapping will also be selecting the East Bay Youth All-American for the Class of 2019 (Freshman All-American Bowl) and 2020 (8th Grade All-American Bowl) at the FBU TOP GUN CAMP in South Carolina on July 14-15.

You MUST be invited to the TOP GUN camp by performing well at one of the regional camps prior to the TOP GUN Camp. Bottom line, you will have to do well at one of the camps, that our staff  is in attendance at, to pick up an invite from myself and/or one of my senior instructors.

NFL FREE AGENT CAMP

291116_2368646975707_1857804060_o

You (the specialists) asked for it, you got it. They (NFL coaches) asked for it, they got it. As you know, Chris Sailer and myself have always run the biggest and best exposure camps for high school Long Snappers and kickers.  For the second year, we are moving into the NFL realm to give the needed exposure to our college athletes.

This one day camp will be a showcase for NFL coaches. There will be little coaching (you shouldn’t need a ton if you are at this camp) as this camp will all be about exposure. NFL coaches and personnel will be on hand to personally see the Long Snappers in action.

In order to attend this camp, you must be out of college and be eligible for the NFL draft.

  • March 17, Las Vegas, NV

You can register for the NFL Free Agent camp HERE (spots will be limited)

COLLEGE LEVEL CAMP

This camp will be ONLY for 4 year university college Long Snappers AND Long Snappers entering into a 4 year university. 1st year JC and freshman, sophomores and juniors in high school can NOT attend this camp.

This will be a very high level camp that will be run similarly to the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp. Cost of the camp will include accommodations, transportation to the fields and the instruction, and meals. This camp is built for Long Snappers looking to dominate the college camp and get ready for the NFL.

  • July 15-17, IMG Academy, FL

TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE CAMP

Top 12

This camp is open ONLY to those invited personally by Rubio. You are chosen to attend this camp by performing extremely well at either the January or May National Snapping Events in Las Vegas. Do NOT sign up for this camp unless you have been formally invited by  Rubio. Former “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” members includes countless college and NFL players, All-Americans, NFL Pro Bowlers and Super Bowl participants.

Some Long Snapping “TOP 12” Alumni: Christian Yount (Cleveland Browns), Justin Drescher (New Orleans Saints), Aaron Brewer (Denver Broncos), Jon Weeks (Houston Texans) to name a few.

The “TOP 12” is chosen after the January Event (VEGAS XXVII) and the “EVENT ELITE” is chosen after the spring Event (VEGAS XXVIII). There are obviously 12 chosen for the “TOP 12” and there is no set number for the “EVENT ELITE”. Those that deserve it and are top of their class in May, get chosen…it could be one, it could be 20.

The success rate of those we have chosen have been selected in the past that go on to play college football (most on scholarship) is over 95%.

  • July 18-20, IMG Academy, FL

Invites go out after each Vegas Event.

UNDERCLASSMEN INVITATIONAL

You will almost think of this INVITATIONAL as a baby TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp. This two day camp that Rubio Long Snapping puts on will be completely gearing towards the athletes and their parents/guardians. This camp is meant to not only get the athletes headed in the right direction in the beginning of their high school careers, but also their parents. It will provide information regarding nutrition, social media, recruiting, film, education and, of course, on field instruction. This event is just as much for the parents/guardians as it is the athletes!

College recruiting for Long Snappers is finally getting where it needs to be. Scholarships are being offered earlier and earlier each year. Early exposure is necessary these days. The Rubio Long Snapping Underclassmen “Invite Only” Event is the perfect opportunity to make a name for yourself and solidify your national ranking at the perfect time. The middle of the summer is now the time college coaches build their underclassmen lists. You want to be on that list. This camp will get you there. It is also your first opportunity to prove that you are a “TOP 12” candidate in your class. The camp is set in July for a reason, college coaches asked us to do this. They want the inside track early. Don’t be surprised to see more and more underclassmen offered during the season in the near future.

There will be formal meetings/classroom sessions on individual topics such as: Training (what level is right for the underclassmen athlete, how often, proper techniques), Nutrition and Lifting (Good habits, bad habits), Social Media (Setting up and using the proper social media outlets – this has become a must), Filming (proper angles, techniques, times, set up), Education (the importance of it, standards, year by year plan)

  • July 21-22, IMG Academy, FL

Invites go out in May.

How to Get an Unofficial Recruiting Trip

Ask.

Seriously, that is all you have to do . Call the football office (THE PLAYER CALLS) and say the following when they answer…

“Hi, my name is ___________ and I am a Rubio Long Snapper in the class of ____. (if you want to brag about your ranking, here is where you would do it). I am very interested in going to, and being recruited by,  _____(insert name of school)_____. I am looking to get put on the UNOFFICIAL RECRUIT LIST for your game vs. __________. What is the next step?”

At this point, they will most likely ask you some basic questions…(Name again, school, address, etc.). Answer them all because then you will be in their database and start getting more stuff from the school.

Please note: if this is done during the off-season, you simply tell them what day(s) you will be on campus and they will do the rest.

Couple Points….

  • The difference between an OFFICIAL RECRUITING TRIP and an UNOFFICIAL RECRUITING TRIP is that the athlete pays his way on the UNOFFICIAL RECRUITING TRIP
  • You can take AS MANY unofficial recruiting trips as you’d like. You are only allowed five official recruiting trips.
  • The bigger the game, the bigger the recruit you have to be in order to get those tickets. If you are not an absolute stud, you most likely won’t get a big time rivalry game.
  • You can start this process anytime, but usually sophomore year is good to let it rain.
  • Dress accordingly. Look clean and presentable. Rubio Long Snapping shirt or sweatshirt is always a good choice.
  • If you are too thin, wear thermals. If you are too heavy, wear something that fits well. If you are built well, wear something tight to show off what you got. Unofficial visits are a good way for a coach to see if you pass the eye ball test. Make sure you pass.
  • If parents go with the athlete, make sure the parents have a lot of taffy in their mouths so they don’t speak. Remember, the coach doesn’t want to hear from the parents. He wants to hear from the athlete.

You Are Who You Hang Out With

A Rubio Long Snapping parent posted this photo on Facebook and I had to borrow it to show exactly what the Rubio Long Snapping family is all about AND how things continue to grow.

The picture below is from Vegas about five years ago. It shows your normal group of Rubio Long Snappers hanging out on a Saturday evening after the day of instruction. Everyone is smiling and waiting for their food. There is even a little brother thrown in the mix.

Let me give you a run down of the people in the photo. From left to right, Taybor Pepper of Michigan St/NFL., Scott Daly of Notre Dame, Cory Cheadle of Kansas St. Reid Ferguson of LSU/NFL, Blake Ferguson of LSU and Kelly Mason of Kentucky/NFL.

That is one powerful table. Next time you are sitting around with some members of the Rubio Long Snapping family at VEGAS XXVIII on May 21-22, think to yourself and wonder, will Rubio be talking about me in five years?

You’re a Senior, Now What?

So, you are a 2016 Long Snapper and you are most likely really getting stressed out about the next four years of your life. Either you are committed already and think you are the greatest or you haven’t committed and are wondering what is next?

This blog is going to be in two parts….first for the UNCOMMITTED, second for the COMMITTED.

For the UNCOMMITTED

  • First off, CHILL! It is still early in the recruiting process, trust me. Doubt me, read THIS then read it again.
  • Second, do NOT slack on your grades. Nothing worse than getting a call from a school but you can’t go to them because your grades aren’t up to par.
  • Continue to work with a Rubio Long Snapping staff member and DOMINATE all Rubio Long Snapping camps in your area (yes, you can AND should keep going to Rubio Long Snapping camps when you are a senior). You never know when the right school is going to contact me looking for a Long Snapper like you. You should still be going to Rubio Long Snapping camps in your area to get ready for VEGAS XXVIII in May. May Vegas is essentially your last chance to make it happen.
  • Fourth, you are the “old” guy at the camps now so you need to act like it…be mature, be confident, be nice to the young guys as you were once them.

For the COMMITTED

  • First off, NEVER, EVER STOP getting better. There is nothing that will upset a coach more than having a scholarship or preferred walk-on Long Snapper come into camp looking sloppy. They will EASILY be able to tell you if you haven’t improved since the time they recruited you. Don’t be that guy.
  • Second, do NOT slack on your grades. Sadly, I have had a kid lose a scholarship because his final semester grades slacked so much.
  • Third, NEVER stop improving and getting ready for the next stage of your life. Work with a Rubio Long Snapping staff member and DOMINATE all Rubio Long Snapping camps in your area. (yes, you can AND should keep going to Rubio Long Snapping camps when you are a senior)
  • Fourth, you are the “old” guy at the camps now so you need to act like it…be mature, be confident, be nice to the young guys as you were once them.

Rubio Long Snapper Nick Umble

A couple months ago I received a call from a Long Snapper named Nick Umble. It was a standard phone call that I receive several times a month. He told me how he was recently very interested in Long Snapping and wanted to go full speed into it to get to the next level. He said he was very determined and would stop at nothing.

All things I had heard before. 

But then he told me he was born in 1978 and was just about to RETIRE from the Army as a GREEN BERET. To say that Nick has done a TON for his country is a major understatement. He said he did what he needed to do in the Army and was ready for his next challenge.

Long Snapping was his next challenge.

Umble, NickNeedless to say, Nick is VERY driven and will stop at nothing. I have worked with him several times and he is an absolute workhorse. He is a large, strong Long Snapper that will do EXACTLY what you tell him to do.

Colleges need to look at him seriously for his drive, dedication and for the fact that since he has already retired from the Army, his schooling will be free.

The film you see below is from his first Rubio Long Snapping camp in WA this fall. I have worked with him since and he is already MUCH improved.

He deserves a shot at the next level and he will get one.

Where Should a Long Snapper Hit? The Rubio Zone

The Rubio Zone is EXACTLY where the Long Snapper should hit the punter for best accuracy on a punt snap. The Rubio Zone is from the punter’s mid thigh to his lowest rib and no wider than their armpits.

Anything above the lowest rib could cause the punter to turn his hand’s over which will force him to flip them back over to punt the ball. Anything below the punter’s mid thigh will cause the punter to bend and that could throw off their timing. Anything outside of the armpits will force the punter to step one way or the other.

The Rubio Zone is the perfect location and what every Long Snapper should try to hit on every single snap. Anything outside of The Rubio Zone will negatively impact your overall snap time, as well as total get off time (snap, catch and punt).

Chris-Rubio-2Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the biggest and best resource for Long Snappers in the country. Offering the best instruction and most exposure in the world. Rubio Long Snapping can help you to become the best snapper you can be!

In just 12 years,  Chris Rubio, President and Owner of Rubio Long Snapping, has become the #1 Long Snapping instructor in the country and the go-to man when a college coach needs a Long Snapper. Colleges from across the country rely on “Rubio’s” word day in and day out on who the best Long Snappers are in the country. Rubio Long Snapping has assisted in over 300 Long Snappers earning FULL SCHOLARSHIPS tomajor colleges and universities just for Long Snapping and many into the NFL as well.

Rubio Long Snappers in Games This Weekend (9/26/15)

Teams that have a Long Snapper that has participated in a Rubio Long Snapping camp will be in bold and CAPITALIZED.

Will you be on this list in the future, prove yourself this fall and at VEGAS XXVII to make it happen

As always, this list is VERY big and with so many Rubio Long Snappers playing (Rubio problem) I can miss someone. If I have missed a team, please just let me know. Please note: this is only a list of D1 teams. If I continue with D1AA-NAIA, you’d be reading until the following weekend.
